BFI Flipside presents
CAPTURED (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by John Krish
THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.
Exploring the complex ways in which British POWs responded to brainwashing and torture techniques during the Korean War, John Krish's realistic and disturbing drama was previously only ever shown to a highly restricted audience of military officials. Made available to the public for the first time, Captured is presented here alongside a number of other Krish films that were designed to warn, advise and inform, all of which have been transferred from the best available film materials.
